The fact that Choo is a high OBP guy alone guarantees the jackpot because nowadays the majority of GM and FO have OBP-centric mind.
High OBP is exactly what you want from a lead off hitter. It'd be nice if the Reds could find a proper CF and slide Choo into a corner so that Choo's defense isn't such a liability.
